Support Namba

Your tax-deductible contribution will help create exciting new work in the 805

Namba Performing Arts Space is a 501c3 created with the vision and generosity of Julia Campbell (1936 – 2022) and her husband Ben Namba (1930 – 2020)  The Theatre/Lab Space thrives with input, outreach and financial support from our Community and Performing Arts supporters everywhere. Please join us in supporting a Theatre where performing artists, their teachers, mentors, and their fans can gather to learn, work out and reveal their stories and emotions through the lens of Theatre, Dance and Music.
